I've used some Photoshop before, but I'm still a newbie - I know what offset means, but I don't get the jargon, what does it mean exactly to offset an object, in this particular case?

Is this the sentence in the video you are referring to:
Sometimes I'll even add a layer beneath my mask in a bright green or blue color to offset the object that I'm masking.
If so it means nothing more than distinguish, isolate or as you say make it stand out.
It is not used in the typographic sense where offset is the distance by which you move an element "out of line", but rather in the commonplace sense of the word.
Does that help?
